At least 10 injured in 2 drone attacks at Saudi's King Abdullah airport

Riyadh (Web Desk): At least 10 people were injured in two explosives-laden drone attacks at King Abdullah airport in the southern Saudi city of Jizan late on Friday and early on Saturday.

According to Saudi state media, a coalition spokesman stated that 10 people including six Saudis, three Bangladeshi nationals and one Sudanese were injured in the first attack.

He added that some of the airport's facade windows were shattered in the attack.

The spokesman for the coalition further said that a second explosives-laden drone was intercepted early on Saturday, the coalition said, without giving details on any injuries or damages.

Air traffic in King Abdullah airport was normal, the Saudi state TV said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility by the Houthis. The group regularly launches drone and missile attacks targeting the gulf kingdom.

It is pertinent to mention that the military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing forces of the ousted government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi and fighting the Iran-aligned Houthi group.
